2021 Week 2 What next?

I’ve been thinking about what to do regarding writing and have decided to just continue on writing weekly and see what happens. It’s been quite an eventful week globally. The UK is in another tier 4 lockdown and their NHS is virtually overwhelmed with cases of COVID19. Healthcare workers and other essential workers around the…

2021 Week 1 New Year?

Being honest, I’m not feeling like it is a new year. Still, Happy New Year to everyone in the world and best wishes as always. Our Christmas tree is still up but I’ll pack it up this week sometime and I’m busy writing documents for my kids home education state requirements. Legally I don’t need…

2020 Week 47 Flamingoes 🦩

In September, I can’t remember the actual date, I got Mr Notebook and the kids on board to go for a drive and look at some houses I’d seen on RealEstate.com.au. Getting a home of our own had been my dream for nearly four years. I had no idea exactly how or when, but I…

2020 Week 46 Getting there!

I have the main parts of the house fully functional πŸ™‚ The kitchen is set up, the laundry completely sorted out. I’m so happy to have a vertical freezer in there. I have one extra fridge/freezer outside under the patio to keep extra drinks, milk and bread in. The pool is good to swim and…
